Just making conversation about it. I'm not gonna change your opinion about it.

That's exactly why I wouldn't see it when I saw the trailer in the cinemas when it first came out. It was only when I decided to rent a movie one night we both saw it. I was just surprised.

Either one though? That's interesting. I wonder if it's because I'm a female and you're a male?

I don't think most cared to even see Allegiant based on its box office success compared to the earlier two. It lost money. Or maybe they're waiting to see both together. I do know that many fans, were devastated by the ending in the third book, it actually made them angry. Fans were begging Lionsgate or Summit to change the ending. Maybe that's why.

Fair enough. So have you read the books? I haven't and won't.

As far as not liking it because of gender? Who knows. I just don't get into stuff for younger audiences much. It's fairly evident that both films were created for teen crowds, which doesn't resonate with me. Never has.

But I don't think it's a gender thing. I had a buddy in college that would go with my wife (girlfriend then) to all the disney or pixar movies that she wanted to see. They were both teachers, and liked Disney movies, so it was GREAT for him to go with her instead of me.

I read the books from both series and you are still right. Hell my 10 year old daughter said the same thing...

Finally got around to watching Hateful Eight. I'd give it a 7 out of 10. Wasn't in my top 3 Tarantino movies....but was still good nonetheless.

I never even knew about Young Adult fiction until after I saw Twilight, the entire series of The Hunger Games and the first two of the Divergent series. I just liked the stories and characters a LOT. It wasn't until I looked into the authors that I found it was called Young Adult Fiction. Turned out I liked all three series, precisely because they were very different from most movies I've seen. Thought they were all very creative and unique.

Another Young Adult Fiction is The Fault in Our Stars which also became a movie. It's not dystopian story though.

My daughter made fun of me for watching The Twilight series and she was a teen at the time and didn't care to watch it.

Keep meaning to watch it but the lowest expectations I have had going into a Tarantino flick and I really love his stuff. It even has Morricone for the score.

I thought it was enjoyable, but not great. It's worth a rental.

You might enjoy reading the original Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Also Podkayne Of Mars by Robert Heinlein, the guy has a ton of old pulpy YA SciFi.

Watched Cop Car last night. Has Kevin Bacon in it. Wasn't great, but want horrible. I'd say if you catch it for free in a movie Chanel it's worth a watch.

Self/Less was actually pretty entertaining. I had seen trailers for it months ago and legitimately thought to myself that it looked horrible, but I was wrong.

Doesn't hurt that you get to stare at Ryan Reynolds for about 90 minutes. He's so dreamy.

Watched The Secret in their Eyes, last night. Was pretty damn good. Good acting, good story, nice little twist at the end. Would definitely recommend.

Has Meru been mentioned yet? Excellent documentary about a team of climbers repeated attempts at likely one of the top two or three most technically difficult climbs in the world. Comparitively, Everest is kinderschpiel, and in fact one of these cats skied at the summit of Everest.

Well worth the 80 minutes- I still don't know how they climbed and filmed at the same time.

Caught a couple of movies that I recorded off the Starz free preview weekend. The first was Into the Woods which was probably the worst movie I've seen in ages. The second was Strange Magic, the Lucasfilms animated movie that came out last year. It had decent animation but a completely predictable plot. I can see why it tanked.

Watched Brick Mansions on Netflix. I want to apologize to Michael Bay for saying he's a terrible director because clearly there are a lot of worse people making movies out there. That movie was just plain trash.
